The Instructor

Melissa Lucas
Yoga Ambassador

I am a life and wellness coach that loves to help people find their true self and life purpose. I have always been someone that helped others with their life issues, but did not always believe that therapy is the best option. I decided after many years of helping others, overcoming personal fear, going through some life changing and traumatic moments of my own, that I needed to find a way to help people meet their full purpose as I did for myself. Instead of discussing the tough moments from someone's past, I want to work to find solutions in the client's current life challenges. The clients I work with can look toward meeting their full potential through finding inner strength, clearing fears, discovering their true self and owning their confidence.

I am a Certified Life and Business Coach ,Certified in Meditation, as well as I hold a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and a Master's in Business Administration. I currently work as a life wellness and business coach, as well as a motivational speaker. Feel free to view my practice at :

Wonderful time! The resort was beautiful and there was enough flexibility to enjoy excursions, workouts and relaxing time. It was safe/easy to get around and the cost for excursions was very reasonable.

My first Trip Tribe was amazing and I can't wait to sign up for another one. I've always wanted to do a yoga retreat and have always wanted to go to Costa Rica. So this experience was once in a lifetime. I loved being active and healthy on vacation while discovering new places. I hope to do this once a year with my sister, Dawn. We are hoping to sign up for one in Tulum, Mexico.

This was the most unforgettable, life-changing trips I couldn't have even imagined in my dreams! I absolutely fell in love with this gorgeous, sustainable country, with the best of all worlds, the rain forest, the jungle, the most beautiful beaches, all with a government who protects their natural resources and allows no hunting of any kind. From the most kind and friendly people who also speak English, to the most beautiful natural playground, I am in awe of this culture and can hardly wait to go back! We faced our fears, had the most fun activities, and most gorgeous venue all to ourselves. THANK YOU and PURA VIDA!!!
